I can’t believe it that there are almost 30 venues open this Friday evening for an event I look forward to every month, “Art on the Town"!
There are 6 galleries open in the Trolley Square area of the City of Wilmington, and 13 more a few blocks away in Downtown Wilmington (including at the Grand Opera House on Market Street, left).
For February, also included are outlying areas such as Old New Castle (3 galleries), Greenville (3 galleries), and 1 each in Bellefonte , Claymont, and Arden. For a complete list of galleries, hours, who has free food and/or drink, and entertainment, see the brochure posted by the City of Wilmington.
I take pleasure in the relaxed atmosphere of these gallery jaunts, especially since I no longer have the responsibility for reviewing the openings for "Art Matters." It was fun, but a big responsibility, and I only earned the written ire of one artist while I was writing the reviews (this was many years ago). Go and enjoy!
And if you happen to see any great homes for sale in Wilmington on your trip, just drop me a line and I would be glad to help you!
